These are a few of my favourite things . . .
Autumn colours. This is a photo my sister took of the road which runs past my mother's house. At least I think it is that road. It makes me feel homesick to see it and the colours. Our leaves change here in the UK also, but we don't have the vivacity of colour that you have in North America.
It is my dream to one day visit Vermont in the autumn and see the colours there. My cousin Martha posted a video of an area in Vermont yesterday on Facebook and it was so beautiful.
I have always said that if I ever won the lottery I would move to Vermont. Heaven on earth.
Cruciferous vegetables. I love cruciferous vegetables. Cabbage, broccoli, sprouts, califlower, kale . . . you name it, if its cruciferous I am all over it like a rash. I could eat a whole plate of properly cooked sprouts and nothing else and be quite happy. I feel the same way about each cruciferous vegetable. And they are very healthy also, balancing blood sugars, cancer prevention, brain protection, immunity, shrinking inflamation, etc.
I think of all the cruciferous vegetables, cabbage and rutabaga are my most favourite of all.
Pecan Pie. I quite simply adore Pecan Pie. It is right up there with Lemon Meringue. In fact I think it edges out Lemon Meringue a tiny bit. I have not had a piece of Pecan Pie in years and years . . .
Far too dangerous for me to have in the house.
Trying new things . . . meeting new people, experiencing new experiences, tasting new foods, seeing new places. I love, LOVE trying new things. Admittedly now that I am older I am not so keen to do things like bungee jump or parachute, but I am always willing to give new thing a try within the realms of safety. I do not have a death wish.
Ruffles, frills and flounces . . . I am a girly girl. I love feminine clothing. I don't wear very feminine clothing because I am of a size, but if I was thinner I would be ruffling, frilling and flouncing all over the place!
Things which inspire thought . . . quotes, books, documentaries, art, etc. Things which make me want to think deep thoughts and ponderances. I love them . . .
Being a woman of great faith. My faith is the very essence of my being. I have always been in tune with my spiritual side, known and seen God . . . . it is just who I am, and always have been.
This is not all there is . . .
Gourds. I love to decorate with them in the autumn. Its been a very long time since I have been able to do that. They are not something which you see over here in the UK. I don't think the wet damp weather is very conducive to growing them.
Potatoes. Boiled. Fried. Baked. Mashed. Even raw. I love potatoes. They are my favourite thing to eat. I could live without bread if I had to. I could live without pasta. I would not ever want to live without Potatoes . . . although if I truly had to I would, but I wouldn't like it, not one bit.
Celebrations! Holidays! Parties! Every day is a reason to celebrate. I just love life and all that it brings to the table. I love being with other people and rejoicing in their happiness. I love birthdays, holiday occasions, graduations, etc. I am going to a Birthday Celebration today for a friend who is turning 60. I can't wait! It is a pot luck lunch and I am going to bring my 7 Layer Mexican Dip. It will be so nice being with the other ladies and catching up with each other's goings on and wishing my friend all the best in her 60th year. Yipee-i-yay Cow Patty!
And finally Silly Songs. I like singing them. I like listening to them. I like making them up. They make me smile.
Which reminds me. When my kids were growing up we used to have singing morning every now and again. You could not talk. You had to sing. Everything. I am not sure they enjoyed it, but I sure did!
Yes . . . I am THAT wierd. Ahh, well, life was never dull.
And those are a few of my favourite things for this week. What are some of yours? A thought to carry with you . . .
You can easily judge
the character of a man
by the way he treats those
who can do nothing for him.
~Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
In The English Kitchen today . . . . Windfall Crumble Cake. Delish!
Have a beautiful Thursday . . . may you never forget . . .
